I really hope someone can help with this. I was having problems with an old Gateway MX6015 laptop and since there is nothing on it I reinstalled the original system software (XP) to start fresh.
As a newbie when the network setup came up I accidentally used my routers name as a network name. Now it will not connect to my wireless connection because it is trying to connect to a network that does not exist. ie. Cannot connect to McKnet network. Unfortunately I need to connect to my router named McKnet and don't want to change the SSID.
My husband does not want me to change the SSID on our router because he is too afraid I will mess up all our other stuff that he runs.
Can I just somehow go in and change the network name???? I have tried everything and nothing has worked. Thanks very much.
Ok, did that. Now when I go back and try to connect to my wireless it will not accept my password (which I know is correct for sure because my phones and all laptops use it).
At least I am getting to this point now! Any suggestions would be greatly apprectiated.
I have a WPA2 set up.
Thanks sooooo much!!!!
